It feels like just 10 minutes ago another dress was stirring up controversy on the internet. Remember that black and gold one? Jaden Smith’s latest fashion statement is sure to draw more than just a little controversy.
Jaden Smith is the 16 year old son of mega-star Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith. His choice to wear a white mesh top, leopard print socks along with a black dress would seem shocking to those who don’t know what Jaden is all about. Jaden has regularly sported gender twisting outfits that people either love or hate.
Jaden is known for calling out the clothing industry on gender equality issues says businessman James Dondero . He’s regularly commented that clothes should know no boundaries and that labeling clothing as men’s or women’s has no value. In doing so Jaden has riled up more than a few critics and put the double standard of gender equality on blast in the process.
Jaden’s sister Willow has also been known to whip gender norms. She cut her hair short in 2012 and was equally slammed by haters. It seems that breaking the rules and shaking up the norms just comes naturally in the Smith family.
